Godio, Julio. Argentina: Luces y sombras en el primer año de transición. Las mutaciones de la economía, la sociedad y la política durante el gobierno de Duhalde. (Enero-Diciembre de 2002). Buenos Aires, Argentina, 2003

Este libro se dedica al análisis de las mutaciones del 2002 en la economía, la sociedad y la política, durante el gobierno de tipo neodesarrollista presidido por Eduardo Duhalde, constituido a partir de un amplio acuerdo parlamentario. Este gobierno ha buscado desmontar progresivamente los conflictos y contradicciones generados por una crisis global (económica, política, social y cultural). Es un proceso con luces y sombras, porque algunos asuntos han sido resueltos y otros no. La economía ha mejorado levemente, pero la crisis global continúa. La pobreza, el desempleo masivos persisten. El final de esta etapa de transición está abierta. Diferentes líneas de fuerza política pugnan por acceder al poder. La democracia necesita una gran reforma para subsistir. La caída del gobierno de la Alianza inaugura un fin de época, y se abren diferentes alternativas políticas dentro de una nueva etapa histórica en este país, en un contexto internacional de globalización mundial capitalista y de desequilibrios crecientes entre los países del norte y del sur; fenómenos que seguirán condicionando el futuro de la Argentina. Éste es un libro que ayudará al lector a ubicarse dentro del cuadro político institucional y electoral actual.
